This is an awesome show, not for the era, but in general. I plan to spend some more time here. Fantastic Miller transfer.

Subject: Enhanced by Branford's presence
Certainly not as good as 1990.3.30 or 1991.9.10, but still better than most post 1991 shows. A previous reviewer placed this show side by side with the former show as one of the best of the 1990s. I disagree. Solid energy for the period but not even close to comparable to Brent's 1990 stint before his untimely passing.

What we got here is a more solid than normal Jerry (considering the time period) with Branford helping inspire heavier licks than normal.

Highlights include a confident and quieter than normal Hell in a Bucket.

The Loser to follow is well done, with few vocal mistakes and some ripping solos.

I was hoping than the So Many Roads would be a standout version, given Branford. But what we get is Jerry forgetting 60& of the lyrics and overall confusion in the band.

The Eternity is painful.

Something happens second set. The Terrapin is masterful as is the miracle jam into SOTM. The end of the show is clean and concise. Hard qualities to find in most 1993 recordings.

I give the performance a 4 since its noteworthy for Branford's presence. Also some good highlights.

5 for sound by CM!

Franklly,the ever so elegant So Many Roads from set1 and the blissful sound of Branford tangeled with Jerry`s perfect guitar leads of SOTM in set2 make this night,how do i say,GREAT!!Two of Jerry`s most climatic and life changing ballads of all time,played on the same night always brings happiness,yet a tear is soon to emerge,for these songs have meaning that we felt.Also,a proving run through of Scarlet>Fire is a nice way to bust a 2nd set out with pure emotion and dance......Now to what i heard in previous reviews about the Band`s fall-off during it`s latter years.I can only imagine what those fools were actually listening too.Is it that they just don`t know or not understand,that Jerry`s voice alone brought a feeling to the lyrics,that made you realize Jerry not only sings His songs,but He lived them out on stage each night!The age-ripened,raspy and oh so full of feeling sound that enriched the music during the late 80`s gave us moments in the music that no show from the 70`s could ever think of sound out.Then the twang and bouncy feeling of guitars such as "Bolt" and"Tiger" with intermittent blasts from the MIDI tech brought songs like Ramble On Rose and Peggy-o a to another world.Simply put,all the years combined,they melt into a dream.How could we ever give out any negative critisicim to a Man that carried the weight of the world upon his shoulders,yet was always there on stage pouring musical magic that brought the joy to our lives,like no one else could.I truely and honestly feel that the late 80`s and 90`s bring the sound of what Jerry spent His life perfecting!Open your ears and HEAR for the 1st time what you have failed to hear previously..."I`d rather be with HIM"we miss you oh so much Jerry.

Subject: I don't know - band sounds kind of tired
Charlie as always did a lovely job mastering this - and hey!it's a Grateful Dead show with Branford Marsalis! For those two reasons I'm gving this a kind 4 stars. Maybe it was end of tour lag, but this just does not compare to any of Branford's earlier appearances. Definitely do not listen to it side-by-side with Branford's best night 9-10-91 or it will make you sad.
